Different elements of the development cycle

From the beginning of the project, MDM projects will assist you in deciding which requirements apply to your device, reviewing the design specifications for enforcement, and implementing an effective risk management program. During their first phases of medical device development and design, we also provide additional support and feedback to start-up companies. We ensures that barriers to entry are overcome rapidly and a strong regulatory and go-to-market plan is established.

Risk management

In all areas of product creation, from concept consultation, complete product safety testing, and completion of a Declaration of Compliance (DoC), to collection and analysis of the Technical File, we offer unbiased third-party support. Our experts provide you with consultative advice and input during the entire product development process. We have world-class experience in electrical and electronic medical device research, so you can be confident in putting your product on the market.

Certification and marking 

The IECEE CB certification meets most of Europe’s CE labeling criteria for the protection of medical and electronic equipment and suggests that you only need to test your product once at a single venue.


Our safety experts understand the difficulty of global export safety testing of medical products and support manufacturers with 3rd party testing, county representation, product localization, and more to achieve accelerated market speed for successful product launches.
